Cobra Kai star Martin Kove, best known for portraying karate sensei John Kreese in the Karate Kid franchise, is taking the leap into comics. During New York Comic Con 2022, Kove, with the help of his son Jesse Kove, debuted his comic book series Prodigal Son, bringing readers the first of four issues. Since its initial debut, the Koves have been working towards a greater launch for the series via an ongoing Kickstarter campaign. Prodigal Son still has a little ways to go before it’s fully released, but the Koves are already looking ahead.
During an interview with Perri Nemiroff, Martin and Jesse Kove confirmed they want to turn their comic book series into a television show.
